Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter in a panic after news emerged of Brentford boss Thomas Frank’s positive Coronavirus test.
Why does this concern Spurs?
Well, after full-time in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final win over the Bees, Frank was seen hugging Pierre-Emile Højbjerg.
The two men are both from Denmark, and seemingly decided to have a little catch-up on the touchline in north London.
While nothing was made of that at the time, Tottenham fans are now fretting over their embrace as Frank has tested positive for COVID-19.
Should Højbjerg return a positive test in the coming days, he will need to isolate for around two weeks.
That would see the former Bayern Munich stalwart miss the Premier League clashes against Aston Villa and Sheffield United.
He could also miss tomorrow’s FA Cup clash against Marine if he tests positive before kick-off.
It’s far from an ideal situation.
Jose Mourinho can ill-afford to lose the Dane, who has emerged as arguably his most important player since arriving from Southampton in the summer.
However, Frank should have tested positive before the semi-final, so he really shouldn’t have had Coronavirus at the time of the game.
Nevertheless, let’s see what the Tottenham fans on Twitter have been saying…

Football needs to stop the hugging of opponents. This is ridiculous if PEH catches Covid from their manager https://t.co/HBVPJOSGZc— JaiP (@JaiP72) January 8, 2021
